Shortly after the Syrian Army expelled rebel forces out of the capital of Damascus, soldiers discovered a mass grave of 20 corpses buried under rocks and other debris.
The mass grave was uncovered in the Yelda district of Damascus, an area that was under rebel control for the past few days. The 20 bodies the army dug up were burnt and defaced.
According to the locals in Syria, armed men harassed and killed the civilians, and then buried the corpses. Some reports described the stench of dead bodies covering entire areas of the city. The victims wore both, civilian and military outfits. (AV)
